The Executive Office of Transportation's successful EOT Developers Page beta launched in July is attracting national attention.

Read the New York Times on Massachusetts and the MBTA among those leading the way on open data.

The EOT Developers page has released information and data about Massachusetts transportation agencies and authorities useful to developers interested in creating applications to help customers.  Data release through the Developers page includes MBTA and RTA route and schedule data, MassHighway and MassPike planned construction event data, RMV branch wait time feeds and a variety of other information.

The EOT Developers are engaging data developers through Twitter for updates, a Google Group, and regular meetings. 

Check out three iPhone applications already built using this data including the MassTransit App, To a T and an RMV wait times application .
